Rio Secco Golf Course overview
Opening in 1997, Rio Secco Golf Club was later refined by original architect Rees Jones in 2017. Located just south of Las Vegas, this excellent desert-style golf course measures 6992 yards from the back tees and offers four sets of tee boxes.
Tight rolling fairways are surrounded by the desert landscape and deep canyons, emphasizing accuracy from the tee. During renovations, Jones made the course more playable for the leisure golfer whilst still incorporating features that challenge the most seasoned players. Rio Secco has a lot of variety from hole to hole and is set in a picturesque environment.
The front-nine plays through steep canyon walls, whilst the back-nine makes its way up to a plateau where the views are stunning. With downtown Las Vegas and the scenic mountain ranges as your backdrop, Rio Secco is a must on a Vegas golf trip.
The signature hole on Rio Secco Golf Course is the par-4 2nd. Carved out of steep canyon, this 452-yard dogleg right has an elevated tee box that offers views of both the mountain ranges and Las Vegas skyline. This challenging hole has a tight, sloping fairway that leads into a small, well-protected green.
